Good morning everyone, it is Monday, December 14th! Middle and high school students, you have live core classes today.
We have five school days left before Winter Break. Please make sure to attend all of your classes and office hours this week. Attendance is mandatory and absences are being recorded.
Last weeks Bingo winners included Pamela Morrell and David Somes. Thank you students and staff for attending Bingo - we had a great showing and even lip synched some favorite holiday songs.
Attention Middle School students; This coming Wednesday from 4 PM to 5PM there will be a Harry Potter Themed virtual escape room happening. After deciding on your house you will embark on an adventure through Diagon Alley. It is critical that you keep your wits about you to solve puzzles while being attacked by crazy pixies. Mr. Purdue will be hosting this event and if you are interested in attending please email Mr. Purdue so he can send you the link to the google meet. You must let Mr. Purdue know by 1:30PM on Wednesday the 16th.
Ugly Sweater Day pictures are due by this Wednesday. All pictures must be sent to
Cheyenne Beck at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Resilience requires courage that starts inside you. As Winston Churchill said, “Success is not final and failure is not fatal, but courage is what counts.” The great Nelson Mandela believed that courage was the triumph over fear. Your school counselors are here to help you develop that courage, that grit that is so necessary in all parts of your life. Our door is open, and we are here to listen and to help. Please email if you want to talk.
CMHS Dad Joke of the Day:
If you ever come across a vampire snowman...
watch out for Frostbite.
Words of Wisdom...
This is Mr. Kappes with a few words of wisdom.
Do you remember John F. Kennedy's famous words?
Ask not what your country can do for you,
ask what you can do for your country.
Here's the question of the day: Are you contributing to the world, your country, your school, your family, or do you have a case of "The Gimmes?" Gimme this. Gimme that. Gimme more. Gimme better. Gimme. Gimme. Gimme.
A "gimme" attitude will — in the end — get you nothing. Listen to the words of this proverb:
Who asks at once for much,
returns home with an empty bag.*
Today, remember this: It's important to balance receiving with giving. Take a look. Are you asking for too much and not giving enough?
With something to think about, this is Mr. Kappes. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
